Candle detail

This candle looks very pretty with gold or silver drawing pins at Christmas. Older children will enjoy creating quite intricate designs. They could even vary the design by pushing sequins or beads into the candle with short pins, too.

Please be aware that if you use plastic coated drawing pins, as we have, that this candle is decorative only and should not be lit! If you use metal drawing pins you could light the candle with care (although you should never leave the candle unattended).
